Tinkerbells Fairydust

Tinkerbells Fairydust was the name of a British pop group in the late 1960s, (originally named The Rush) who hailed from East London and recorded under the Decca label. Although they never enjoyed much chart success in England they did manage to reach the number one slot in Japan in 1967 with hit single - 2010 a minor-keyed piece of harmony psych, with Wa-Wa Vox Continental, Mellotron flutes, Spanish style Guitar, and Choir-like Vocals.
The song lyrics eluded to the year twenty ten (still 43 years away in 1967) and where the world would be then "Twenty Ten is three and forty years away, will we still be walking together, will we still have something to say..."

Signed to Manager Don Arden the various band members were Steve Maher (Guitar Vocals), Stuart Attride (Guitar/Keys Vocals), Gerry Wade (Bass Vocals), Barry Creasy (Drums Vocals), Chas Wade (Drums Vocals), Eileen Woodham (Hammond Vocals) and Dave Church (Vocals). For a short time the band worked with a young Jeff Lynne (of ELO Fame) and released one of his songs "Follow me follow" which was on the B side of single "Sheilas back in town" (Decca F 12865) - Ref: http://home-1.tiscali.nl/~elo/ELOclopedie/bio-jefflynne.htm Ref: http://music.barnesandnoble.com/search/artistbio.asp?CTR=894426

An album "Tinkerbells Fairydust" - Source: (Decca SKL 5028) was recorded by the band in 1968 just as the band broke up and released in only a small quantity by Decca. The consequence of this is that the extreem rarity of this album has pushed up its collectibility rating to where recently a very shabby scratched copy was sold recently (2007) on Ebay for £1,200! Making it one of the most valuable collectable Pop Albums.
